WORKSHOP 8F (Friday) / 8S (Saturday)

Judith Luman and Dorothy Paul: Parent transformation

Parents are the most important stakeholder in the education of a child. It is our responsibility to educate  parents by connecting what Montessori students experience inside their school environments with the child’s life outside the school. The consistency between the classroom and the home is most important for the growth of the whole child. In this workshop we will discuss how to appreciate, to educate and share with parents connections from the inside of our environments for consistency.
